Andre Iguodala fakes out Warriors fans with trade tweet

Friday July 17th, 2015

Golden State Warriors fans have had a great past couple of months after winning the NBA title and setting up for run next season after locking up the return of Draymond Green.

NBA Finals MVP Andre Iguodala apparently felt that Bay Area fans have been a little too comfortable lately, so he decided to play a classic Twitter prank on fans.

The veteran re-tweeted a Mercury News article that said coach Steve Kerr doesn't anticipate Iguodala in the starting lineup next season and simply added “Then trade me.”

Warriors fans replied with disbelief, while fans of other teams immediately started trying to recruit the 31-year-old.

But Iguodala was nice and didn't prolong the prank. A minute later, he let everyone know that he was only kidding as the Bay Area exhaled at once.
